Arvato and changemaker partner to explore the future of the automotive industry at a unique event

24th November 2022 · Arvato · News, Press Releases

Experts from across the automotive industry came together to discuss how organisations from across the ecosystem are preparing for the future of the sector at changemakers inaugural Mobility Forum, hosted in partnership with ArvatoConnect and in aid of charity partner, the Turing Trust.

‘Putting the customer at the centre of the connected ecosystem’ provided a platform for the industry to discuss how it could approach several key issues – from how to seamlessly integrate with consumers’ existing digital lives and the importance of trust and transparency; to how to effectively harness the huge amounts of data vehicle manufacturers have access to, to really add value to customers and the wider community in the push towards sustainability.

The forum was held on 17th November at the renowned Bletchley Park, the historic home of the World War II Codebreakers, where pioneering innovations helped turn data into winning insight. Arvato and changemaker were joined by a host of the industry’s leading minds from brands including BMW Group, Volvo Cars, Polestar, Jaguar Land Rover, Honda, Aston Martin, the AA, DMI, WirelessCar and Goodwood.

The exclusive event kicked off with a short talk from James Turing, CEO of the Turing Trust, followed by Lee Colman, Chief Production Officer at SBD Automotive sharing insights into the future of the connected car space, before leading into three round table discussions with attendees. The day culminated with a historian’s tour of Bletchley Park and a special up-close demonstration of an original wartime Enigma machine.

Mike Sloman, Business Development Director, ArvatoConnect, said

With connected vehicles, mobility-as-a-service, new disruptors and electric platforms, data is fast becoming the key to opening new business models. This will pave the way for a revolution in service delivery and how consumers will interact with not only automotive brands, but businesses across the whole customer supply chain – from manufacturers, breakdown services and fleet providers, to electric vehicle charge point operators and tech suppliers.

It was clear from the conversations in the room that the challenges in the sector require the whole industry to work together to create lasting relationships, add more customer value through personalisation and generate new revenue streams. A huge thank you to the Turing Trust and changemaker for hosting us at the amazing Bletchley Park, which was so instrumental in the development of data analysis. This event has underlined what a key role it now plays in all our lives!
